British singer, pianist and guitarist Mike Sanchez is one of the most exciting and charismatic performers of Rhythm & Blues and Rock 'n' Roll in the world today. His indelible image as a frenetic front man, pumping powerful boogie-woogie from the piano in a soaking red suit, has won him fans from all over the world and attracted a following from many famous rock and blues legends who have lined up to work with him.
Mike recently enjoyed four years as a full-time member of Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, fronting the band since 2001 alongside Georgie Fame, Beverly Skeete, Albert Lee, Andy Fairweather-Low and Eddie Floyd on their annual world tours. The Rhythm Kings released their latest album 'Just for a Thrill' and a fabulous DVD filmed during January 2004 titled 'Let The Good Times Roll', both featuring Mike's extensive roll as a member of the ex-Rolling Stones bassist's touring band.
Mike is currently involved in a number of recording projects and touring line-ups, most notably his 6-piece outfit Mike Sanchez and his Band featuring child prodigy Oliver Darling on guitar, ex-Biscuit Boy bassist Al Gare, Mike's long term drummer Mark Morgan, Nick Lunt on baritone sax (Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra) and Martin Winning on tenor sax (Van Morrison). This band's performances continuously receive fabulous reviews throughout the blues and rockin' scenes across the UK and Europe.
A recent project was Mike's collaboration with top Swedish bluesmen Knock-Out Greg & Blue Weather, creating the hot rockin' album 'Women & Cadillacs' released on Mike's own UK label and on-line store, Doopin Music at www.doopin.com.
